Custom molds, Frederick P. Victoria & Son, L.I. City
Handsome father-son duo Tony and Freddy Victoria whirled me around their studio. A highlight: boxes of beautiful embellishments that add j ne sais quoi to French furniture. Also, lounging in a Louis XV voyeuse, which has a little shelf for resting your arm.
Editor TV interviews Metropolitan Home Editor-in-Chief Donna Warner
What’s more fun than attending a party? Working a party! Just ask Joyce Wadler, the NYT scribe whose defunct Boldfaces Names column was recently resurrected in the Home section as Seen. (Yes, the interior-design crowd revels so frequently it deserves its own gossip column.) What’s more fun than Seen? Editor TV, of course! Since hooking up with The Editor at Large, I’ve been hitting fine fetes around town—film crew in tow! Donna Warner, EIC of Metropolitan Home was one of Editor TV’s first interviews, and she’s not the only one to be put on the spot. Boldface designers from Christopher Coleman to Thom Filicia to Amy Lau to John Saladino are among our conquests. Next up: the grand opening of the new Buck House.
